St John's is indicated only as "overnight - low key". It has been previously suggested that we will have an all-night vigil with exposition and possibly a mass in the evening and/or morning. It was noted that Fred Borg would be the person to discuss any matters/logistics associated with the journey from the Arts centre to St Johns. GS suggested a procession down Queen St and up Cordeaux St.

g. Campbelltown Show - 4-6 April

h. WYD08 week - Monday 14th July to Sunday 20 July
- It was noted that pilgrims need to register individually or as a group from the Parish in order to get a place in the venues during the week. There is a cost of arounf $300+ dollars per person depending on the programme chosen to pay for transport, seminars, food, etc. Fundraising activities, once costs are paid, will help to defray (or perhaps cover fully) these costs.

- Suggestions for future CYC meetings: (i) Excursion to Sculptures by the Sea at Bondi - It is noted that permission consent forms for U18's need to be completed before an excursion can be undertaken.
